An opera! Geez this is just too rich. Who could make this shit up?
He never delivered on his planned musical about the Chitlin' Circuit, so in classic Boob fashion he's moved on to opera. Just another fever dream, like the 'jazz ballad' he wrote with Jerry.
He'd do well to watch the Burns' County Music episode about not getting above your raisin.' Those guys get it.

The "life form" came to him as an opera this time.
I admire his drive and spirit and even some of his ego.I guess the things that always bugged me about him still do but its ok.
I figure friends have faults but they don't get in the way.

Sure. I just wish he'd keep it more real. Not so much a searchlight casting for faults, just noting he lacks that humble, modest quality that endeared me and I think a couple others to Jerry. My heroes have always been authentic.

In fact, if he had pulled off more of a departure from the scene and actually staged a musical or opera (perhaps saving us from the continual evolving iterations of his cover band) I'd be all in. Can you imagine the musicians he'd be capable of rounding up for that musical?

then there was this

"In short, you might have a perfectly good time at “Red Roses, Green Gold,” even if it’s less a diamond in the rough and more fool’s gold."
